archiT46 - Timber Frame

Timber Frame #archiTEXTure #patchwork #quilting #textileart

This is inspirational photo #46 of our archiTEXTure Challenge:

This timber frame building is located in Stratford upon Avon where you
can walk the streets searching for the spirit of England‘s greatest bard. Did
the texture and the contrast created by the black beams and the white
plaster help to inspire him to create his dramas, plays and poetry? Or is this
source of inspiration reserved to us visual artists?

Visit the Artist: Brigitte Lüthi

As for the entire planet, Covid19 made fundamental changes also to the quilting world. No shows, very little possibilities to meet other quilters, closed quilt shops. This is a sacrifice we all have to make. At the same time, we keep telling ourselves that we should be grateful for all the little joys and opportunities we still have.

Much more than little joy was involved in our private visit to Brigitte Lüthi's workroom in Ebnat-Kappel in Switzerland...

Patchwork Puzzles

Patchwork Puzzles #patchworkpuzzles #patchwork #quilt #better than sudoku

The Patchwork Puzzles have been an important part of the Quilt around the World project landscape since 2015. The block mysteries, as we then called them, were initially a part of the second edition of our design course "My Year of Design - A Journey of Thinking and Making". Since then the Patchwork Puzzles have come a long way and have acquired a select and very creative fan club of its own.
